Sustaining St. David's
Consider Five Percent
In 2017 we continue the ambitious, multi-year effort to establish five percent of income as the target standard for our giving to St. David's Church.
If we succeed in that effort, we will fund all of our operations, including outreach, education, and music programs, without over extending our endowment resources.
Whether you choose to pledge 5% this year, or to work toward that level over several years, consider how giving God's “first fruits” back to God could change your life for the better.
We also recognize that some members of our congregation are already using the Biblical standard of the Tithe (10%) for giving, as is the norm encouraged by The Episcopal Church. However, for those who are not yet at that point, 5% would seem to be a good starting goal.

Thank you to all those who have already made a commitment for 2017
The one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:6-8
